    Just keeping it to reasonably priced pieces here, there are several holes I need to plug.

    Ric 4003
    A 6'er of some sort in a suburban middle class income price range
    A dual pup MM
    A P or a P/J

    I *think* I can abstain from bass buying after getting these (still gotta get gear though :))

    So what are you missing?
  2. A Ric 4003, STAT.

    What isn't. :p

    I really want a Jazz Bass of some sort, but i'd rather get a Ric 4003 before that.

    Something that doesn't exist. A wide spaced, 5 string version of a Rickenbacker 4001V63.
  6. I'm missing 4 basses:

    5 string (EADGC) Jazz-ish Fretless (being made by nino)
    5 string (BEADG) Jazz-ish Fretted (also from nino most likely)
    7 string (BEADGCF) Fretless
    7 string (BEADGCF) Fretted

    and after that i'll be done buying basses out of creative GAS, and i'll move on to becomming more like tombowlus :p

    I've wanted a fretless bass for a while now, but after trying a Warwick Corvette fretless, I absolutely must get a fretless bass as soon as possible. I planned on making my own, but I don't know that I can wait that long.

    Nothing. Upton upright, Fender Jazz with rounds, P copy with flats, P fretless, 4 string custom with Kahler whammy, 5 string custom, cheap Steinberger copy...I think I pretty much have everything I'll ever need.

    I have a Fender Sting Bass with flats, and a 1975 R.I. Jazz.
    The only thing i lack is ability

    For me ...

    A custom Alembic Series II (can you say a John Entwistle Spyder, just like his?)
    A fretless Fender Jazz

    That's about it. Hell, I have 18 in the stable. If those two don't round it out, I have serious problems!

    I need a fretted and fretless 6er, with a reasonable price. Then mebbe I need to upgrade my amplification. I may get a fretted and fretless 5er instead, but I just can't decide between EADGC or BEADG so a 6er sounds right for me.

    All four of my basses are four strings and fretted so I guess I need a fiver and a fretless.

  18. Some fenders - tele w/hum, bass v, bass vi, musicmaster, bullet... - another P...

    Stingray 2 pickup model (essentially a bongo, but stingray specs)

    thats it i think...

    I think that would just about round it out!
  20. All I play is passive 4-string basses, so my needs are simple. The only thing I feel like I'm missing is a true Fender Jazz bass. I have three killer J-style basses and a Fender P with flats, but I think a real Fender J would really round out the collection.
